The Council supports staff continuing to partner and collaborate with local, regional, and state agencies, non-governmental and non-profit organizations, businesses and business organizations, and other relevant entities to share information, ideas, and processes; to explore grants and other financial programs for supporting this effort; and continue to work towards improved climate and environmental resilience.
